There are many different styles of sewing available and each one is used to achieve a specific result. Some are more decorative and some more functional, some open flat others don't. 

 
 
Section sewn books

Section sewn

This is the preferred method of sewing, the books are sewn in folded sections to make up a book block, allowing the pages to open flat. This method is ideal if you have 2 page spreads or full bleed pages.

Over sewn books

This technique is used to sew individual sheets together into a book block. This is an easier method for your file set-up as you don't have to deal with sections, however the finished book does not open flat.
